After months of rumours, former ROH World Champion Kyle O’Reilly finally made his NXT debut during yesterday night’s NXT tapings from Full Sail University.
During his debut, Reilly faced the NXT Star Aleister Black in a one on one match and unfortunately lost. What’s interesting to note here is that WWE allowed him to retain his ring name from the independent circuit instead of giving him a new identity.

He is a former one-time ROH World Champion and has won multiple Tag Team Championships in various indie promotions along with his former partner Bobby Fish.
